some kids were riding their bikes down the middle of the street, asked if they could have food because they “haven’t eaten today.” and the ride off yelling obsenities Is expect from a high schooler, not an elementary student. It’s dangerous too that they were just riding in the middle of the road. Is there a number specific service the city provides that directs kids to make better choices and not (sexually!!) harass people in the street, check to see if they are really hungry?
Partridge St At Providence St Albany, New York - Pine Hills
traffic enforcement is needed at the intersection of Partridge and Providence. Many cars speed through without even slowing down to the stop sign posted on Partridge early in the morning. (Between 5:30 AM and 6:30 AM).
Regular vehicles include a dark colored Jeep Grand Cherokee,and a white Toyota Corolla
I recently purchased a house on this block and have been told by neighbors that this building had suffered fire damage at one point. The owner had fixed the roof and is simply waiting for the property's value to increase before selling. In the meantime, the front porch is badly damaged, and the building's foundation is crumbling. It is a blight and needs to be addressed. I would like to encourage the city to contact this owner and demand that he/she repair the building or sell to someone who will.
The overgrowth and vines is starting to wrap itself around the power lines to this house. There is rotting trash in the back yard which includes construction debris, paint cans and aerosol cans. Paint is peeling and several screens have been pulled out on the windows.
The occupants of said address own a dangerous and untrained aggressive animal, which is allowed free range of the entire block at any given point in the day. It is never on a leash. It’s only a matter of time until it hurts or kills someone or someone else’s pet. Recently, (not an hour ago) a woman was nearly attacked because they never have it on a leash. This has gone on for months and the guy always apologizes but cant seem to figure out a leash law, Good luck. It’s an easy place to find. The front yard is all dug up. Bare dirt. I hear they’re also squatters so that should be a fun day. Thank you.
Still no compliance, this is nothing new!!
City of Albany do what you said you were going to do!

There is a LOT OF MONEY for the the city coffers in just the Heldeberg Neighborhood !!
Do what you said you were going to do!!!
All up and down Dana Avenue there is illegal trash stored in front of homes. It creates issues with vermin, animals tearing into the bags, smells, insects and a general run down look that is unneccessary. This is reported over and over, but either people are not fined or don't care (like the many absentee landlords with deep pockets who escape any real accountability) . This leaves other residents and property owners at the mercy of the situation. This would not be allowed in more affluent areas. Why is it continually allowed on Dana Ave and Morris St.?
260-296 Myrtle Ave Albany, NY, 12208, USA - Albany
This overgrown stretch of sidewalk is along the fence line of the field at Hackett Middle School. The bushes and branches are obstructing the sidewalk making it difficult for walkers, bikers or those in a wheelchair/scooter to navigate this area. This sidewalk is utilized by Veteran patients, many of whom have physical limitations. It is also used by staff from the Albany VA & Albany Medical Center and students & staff of the middle school. Cars drive down Myrtle Ave very quickly, putting those diverted to the street at risk of being hit.
